Always here for you



 I got some new stamping goodies in the mail last week but didn't have a chance to use them since I was working on my fun Easter projects. Well...I made a little time to get inky this morning and use one of the new sets I bought.  I can tell it will be a new favorite!  It is called Brushed Blooms from PTI and was just released last month.



 I also decided to play along with this week's Make It Monday challenge: ombre stamping! While this isn't a new technique, it is a trendy one.   I inked up each piece to create the floral scene using different colors to create the ombre effect.  I did run into a few snags as I needed to add the shadows to the fowers which decreased the ombre appearance. I thought about graduating the ink on those as well, but thought it might get too distracting, so they were just stamped in one color.



I also added some dew drops to the flowers and leaves as well as a few vellum butterflies for some added interest.  Thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. I have once again over committed myself so I will be busy as a bee this month making baby shower decorations and putting together Teacher Appreciation Week projects, so stay tuned!
